How to “Protect/Shield” Yourself Energetically

Have you ever walked into a place and felt intense anxiety come over you? Walked into a room and know that someone is not in a good mood? Had a conversation and walked away feeling that the other person drained most of your energy? 

Most people take on other people’s energy without realizing it.

There is a difference between shielding yourself and protecting yourself energetically, and it is essential to know the difference.

Shielding is the act of putting up an energetic “barrier” to add a level of protection to yourself or those around you. In other words, shielding is an active form of putting on clothes before you go outside.

Energetic protection is about claiming your space. It’s about not taking on any unwanted energy from people and situations.


You can imagine sacred light or fire energy coming from Mother Earth and burning (fire) or dissolving (light) away from any unwanted energy attached to you. As it touches the fear-based energy, it transforms it from fear to love.


Ask yourself this question: “What percentage of the way I feel right now is mine?”

When you have a number in mind, let’s say it’s 20%, you can take a deep breath into your heart and release the breath while saying to yourself or out loud, “I send this energy that is not mine back from where it came; blessed and transformed.” You have transmuted energy from heaviness into a blessing.

For the remaining 80% that is yours, take another breath and imagine your heart expanding to fill this energy inside it.


Use your imagination to create something that feels right to you, and make sure the protective light surrounds your whole body in all directions. For example, see yourself wearing:

  • A powerful shining light armor
  • A bright robe
  • A goddess cloak with sparkling crystals

What would you like to wear today? You can even create a different one each day.


When you shine your inner light brightly, you won’t need to place an armor or shield yourself from unwanted energies. You are stepping into your Power.

You can use the following command: “I command all those not in the light of love and God (source) to leave and stay out. You have no permission to be here. Leave now”

You’re stepping into your power and moving from a position of victim to a position of being empowered. You are the light, and that is the most powerful gift we were all given. Remind yourself not to let anyone or anything, physical or non-physical, disempower us.

Do you have an interesting technique for energetic protection? Would you like to share your thoughts on the matter?

  1. Stepping back and observing rather than absorbing anotherโ€™s energy works for me. Wonderful post, thank you. ๐Ÿ™โค๏ธ

  2. I, personally, found a very interesting thing in my travels. The energy of love attracts to us wherever we are at, if we fear something that is exactly what it attracts so that we can face and go through the lesson and understand why we are in that place. So in all the years that I had ‘blocked, transmuted, changed, begged’ the energy I had attracted to go its way, I always kept bringing it back. And then when I finally stepped through my fear (stubborn things but great teachers)…and it stopped. It only, finally, dawned on me that ‘I’ will always attract by where I am at within myself. Yes, we learn to keep it at bay, as you have so beautifully explained above, but then run into it a little further down the track. When I removed the ‘attractor’ (my fears) within me it did something interesting, it now flows on by…I can feel it, but, it no longer has anything to hold because I’m not in that place within any more. And in fact I can now read hearts so much more clearer because of that removal. It is no longer interfering with the message I’m being asked to hear in any healing. Thank you for sharing dear lady, and a Merry Christmas to you and yours. May your attractor only be Santa ๐Ÿ˜€ โค๏ธ ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿฝ ๐Ÿฆ‹ ๐ŸŽ…๐Ÿฝ ๐Ÿ•Š ๐ŸŽ„ ๐ŸŽ โ›„๏ธ
